TOUR TIME INFO
NOTE: drive time between the Battlefield and Schuyler House, Saratoga Monument, or Victory Woods is about 15 minutes.
PETS at the Park
1) "YES!" in response to the question, "Are dogs allowed in the park?"
While they are allowed in the park, only certified help animals are allowed in park buildings.
2) "Please keep me safe!" A reminder from your canine companion to keep it in control and on a leash at all times during your visit. Dogs must be on a leash, their owners must be holding the other end. It's for your pet's protection!
3) "I can't flush!" Please be considerate of other visitors and clean up after your pet. Disposable waste pickup bags are available at a few park locations, with trash cans at or very near the bag dispensers.
4) "Oooh! New people to meet!" Your pet might want to meet others, but please remember that some people may be nervous around dogs.
Did You Know?
The “Boot Monument” at Saratoga National Historical Park commemorates the deeds of Benedict Arnold on the American side at the Battles of Saratoga. His name doesn’t appear on the monument, but not because of any laws against doing so; no such laws exist. The absence is due to his later treason.
